Subject: [PATCH -tip v3 05/11] kcsan: Remove 'noinline' from __no_kcsan_or_inline

Some compilers incorrectly inline small __no_kcsan functions, which then
results in instrumenting the accesses. For this reason, the 'noinline'
attribute was added to __no_kcsan_or_inline. All known versions of GCC
are affected by this. Supported version of Clang are unaffected, and
never inlines a no_sanitize function.

However, the attribute 'noinline' in __no_kcsan_or_inline causes
unexpected code generation in functions that are __no_kcsan and call a
__no_kcsan_or_inline function.

In certain situations it is expected that the __no_kcsan_or_inline
function is actually inlined by the __no_kcsan function, and *no* calls
are emitted. By removing the 'noinline' attribute we give the compiler
the ability to inline and generate the expected code in __no_kcsan
functions.
